A B (Andrew Barton)
"Banjo" PATERSON (1864-1941)

Read ebooks by Andrew Barton Paterson

A B (Andrew Barton) "Banjo" Paterson became a literary celebrity following the publication of 'The Man from Snowy River' in 1895. He is regarded as the premier Australian poet. His most popular works include 'Waltzing Matilda' and 'The Man from Snowy River'.

When they reached the mountain's summit, even Clancy took a pull.
It well might make the boldest hold their breath;
The wild hop scrub grew thickly, and the hidden ground was full
Of wombat holes, and any slip was death.
But the man from Snowy River let the pony have his head,
And swung his stock-whip round and gave a cheer,
And raced him down the mountain like a torrent down its bed,
While the others stood and watched in very fear.
From 'The Man from Snowy River'

Waltzing Matilda appears in Saltbush Bill, J.P., and Other Verses
The Man from Snowy River appears in The Man from Snowy River and Other Verses
